DBT Week in Review - 9/5/08

Actually it should be 'weeks'. Here's a couple of weeks of backlog for today's WIR.


Hold Steady, Drive-By Truckers Map Co-Headlining Tour | Spin Magazine Online:

"Should I Go? Absolutely. The Hold Steady and the Drive-By Truckers have long wished to tour together, with the former's frontman Craig Finn claiming in a statement that the Truckers were 'instrumental to me wanting to start a band and play music again' -- and hopefully the rapport translates to live collaborations on stage. And remember, both are venerable performers in their own right; For further credence, check out our video of the Hold Steady at JellyNYC's Pool Parties in Brooklyn, NY here."

Looting the Bins with Jason Isbell

"'I'm gonna make you walk behind me and carry that thing like Buddy Guy's brother unwrapping his guitar cord behind him,' Jason Isbell says with a laugh, gesturing to the digital recorder-and-lapel-mic contraption I'm fiddling with as we wander into San Francisco's Amoeba Music. 'You'll just have to follow in my wake.'"
